I waited less than 5 minutes to check in. I would think that there would be more than 3 front desk staff on a Friday evening. My room was in the east tower. King Non smoking and away from the elevators. The view faced southwest. The room was clean except for an empty mountain dew bottle near the bed. There... More

This is a TERRIBLE hotel. Our first room was so old with a box TV and a mattress of stone. They were happy to move us to a new room that came with ear plugs. You got it right by the freeway. When I called to complain they said they would be happy to move us back to the other... More

Check in on a friday night less than 15 mins. They have MANY signs posted about use of a debit card at check in. Service at desk was great. Yes decor in the hallways and room sof the EAST tower might be a little outdated but it is clean, quiet, comfortable. Hotel was packed so elevators took some time. Had... More

I last stayed at this hotel about 10-15 years ago while attending a conference and I was dismayed to find that the quality of this hotel has only gone downhill. Staying at this hotel is like time travel back to the early 1980s- and not in a good way. The decor of this hotel remains unchanged from at least 20... More

You can take a free shuttle from the airport to the hotel The shuttle arrives about every 15 minutes so it wasn't a long wait. Driver was friendly. The hotel staff was also helpful. We ate mostly at Rosie's Café the food was great. I loved the buffet we had a nice lunch and not to expensive. Check the prices... More

The Nugget is nice - not super fancy or new, but nice. They have great deals on food, shows, and rooms. They have a free shuttle to and from the Reno Airport. Megabus drops you off about two blocks from their door if you are traveling from San Francisco or Sacramento. The slots were tight and none of the big... More

Worst experience ever. I booked a room last night on their website, however when I got there the price drastically changed. Not only had they already charged me the 34.50 that we agreed upon for a room but decided to add on another 110. Once I explained that this was not mentioned on the website, the manager told me there... More

I was at this Casino for a convention. I would not normally stay or go to a Casino. It was great that they do have non-smoking rooms available. The staff was friendly and helpful. Be ready to deal with smoking everywhere. Good places to eat inside the casino, and nearby.

The check in time was fast and friendly. The rooms were huge and clean the TV is old but not there to watch TV. The casino offers 9/6 JOB at the video poker bar and servers top shelf not well and the bartenders are fast and friendly. I would defiantly stay here again

Stayed here for the skiing at the north of Lake Tahoe 45 minute drive from Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows, about 30 minutes from Mount Rose. Large Casino Hotel with good facilities, good check in staff, large rooms, pool and spa area, several restaurants, costa coffee, oh and Casino. Plenty of parking straight off J17 on I80.
